The end of the year approaches and the entry into force of a new obligation is imminent!
For the bikers and informed holders of large cubes., to circulate with a compliant motorcycle jacket or one with retro-reflective. (port of a retro-reflective system for users of motorized two-wheelers) was repealed on December 18, 2012, by the Minister of the Interior, Manuel Valls / Journal official No. 0001 of 1 January 2013 page 130 text no. 48).
We will so you a call from lighthouse in this legal fog.
Should I buy a new motorcycle jacket or replace?
If your motorcycle jacket is equipped with 150 cm minimum as required by the Decree, you are already so as a rule, via screw of the Act.
In the reverse case, all users of two wheels of more than 125 cc, must be equipped of a cuff, a vest or a patches with compliant coating, as long as it is retro-reflective.
Unfortunately, you must be part of the great family of biker, who has not yet a motorcycle jacket in line with this new regulation, but nothing serious, technically or financially speaking, this is not a panacea. (though! By adding up these last months, 2 breathalyzer, a yellow jacket… it starts to do a little heavy)
In fact: the official purpose of this Decree is to improve the night-time visibility, with a device meets the standard EN 13356.
This retro-reflective equipment and the port of this elements improving the visibility of the large cubes is made compulsory and must wear at all times and in all circumstances: during the day, and night.
Feel free to hold the jacket motorcycle of the color of your choice, but this one must become white when it is lit.
A cuff of 150 cm², composed of reflective strips must be grey or white 30 cm x 5cm is the best compromise, because this alters not or little aesthetic held biker and this in its entirety.
Sanctions and controls
You don’t have to make a drawing or to make you understand, that those who ride without motorcycle jacket will be so the first controlled.
The gendarmes or policemen will be certainly in the first place, sanctions against motorists with outrageous outfits of a “true biker”. For other drive with right equipment, should not be worried.
During a check, if your motorcycle jacket or your device meets the standards EN 471 or IN 1150 of Programingplease, the label will be sufficient to show white paw.
From the first January 2013, authorities will be able to inflict a record in the amount of 68 euros and a withdrawal of two points, someone not the regulatory 150 cm² retro-reflective available Motorcycle equipment.
The Decree of January 3, 2012, relative to the retro-reflective equipment worn by all drivers or passengers of a motorcycle to a greater than 125 cc displacement or of a vehicle of category L5e of a power greater than 15 kW: available.
Manufacturers and retailers
Manufacturers will have no obligations concerning this specifically French measure and so no restricted and or implementation of such a device compliant or not on their motorbike jacket range.
Prior to your purchase of your motorcycle clothing, if it has enough of the retro-reflective surface, manufacturer may issue a certificate of compliance, to present in case of control the customer or resellers.
In the opposite case, you will be forced to fall back to a retro-reflecting device according.
In conclusion, your responsibility to french biker will be totally involved and not that of the manufacturer often stranger, who should put its product into compliance only for the french motorcycle market.
